      Northern Uganda is home to one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. For the past 20 years, the region has been ravaged by a violent civil war in which over 30,000 children were abducted to be used as child soldiers and nearly 2 million people have been forced from their homes into Internally Displaced Persons camps. The results of this war have been devastating. The Acholi tribe makes up nearly the entire population of Northern Uganda. After two decades of displacement and violence, their traditional agrarian culture has been all but decimated. At one point, nearly 90 percent of the population was living in displacement camps where they were entirely dependant on the U.N. World Food Programme to sustain them. Despite these facts, none of these statistics really seem to be news to anybody. People in the west are bombarded by tragic numbers from Africa constantly. This is nothing new. Northern Uganda has received a large amount of international attention through several Documentaries and social justice movements. These programs have chosen to highlight past atrocities in the region in an effort to raise awareness for the problems the population is facing. While there is truth in the past, there is hope in the future. Framed through the viewfinder of an anonymous medium format camera, and the resulting still photographs, “Acholi Crossroads” is slated to be a 75-minute documentary about loss and redemption in Northern Uganda. During the film, we learn about the state of flux in the region through the journeys of two key characters.

            A unique Polish couple in their 80s. After living for 66 years in their flat they have to move out. While Maria is an extraordinary spirit full of undominable optimism and vitality - Tadeusz is a silent scientist and a fatalist. Now they have to fight their existential disaster that unveils the touching stories of their life and casts a shadow over their present. It's a film about justice and equality - the crisis of morality in past and present modern society, as well as about how to get old - staying young. http://www.resettlement.pl Film o niebywałej polskiej parze seniorów która po przeżyciu 66 lat w jednym mieszkaniu musi się wyprowadzić.

Nagle oboje muszą walczyć z osobistą katastrofą, która ujawnia dotyczące ich przeżycia z przeszłości ciążące nad ich decyzjami. Jest to film o sprawiedliwości i równości – o kryzysie moralności w przeszłym i teraźniejszym społeczeństwie – i o tym, jak się starzeć zostając młodym. http://www.resettlement.pl

              The American occupation of Iraq has had catastrophic costs for the Iraqi people, destroying their everyday lives, their security and their future. The UNHCR estimates that 5 million Iraqis have been displaced by the war. More than 1.3 million Iraqis are now living in Syria, many of them in neighborhoods of Damascus. The filmmakers journeyed to Damascus in 2008 to collect interviews with some of these Iraqi refugees, returning six months later for followup interviews. This is the first in a series of short films introducing audiences to the individual stories of Iraqi families broken by the war. "Iraqi Refugee Ikhlass" focuses on one Iraqi survivor and her two young daughters. Ihklass recounts the tragic story that determined her fate as a refugee, and speaks out against the American occupiers who destroyed her world. This surviving small family continues to seek resettlement in a third country.

                    “Yesterday, I was shouting during my sleep. I woke up suddenly, my dream was really scary, it was about Iraq. If you live as a refugee or anyone who was suffering inside Iraq, you would feel this pain living inside you, making you really suffering; struggling for survival.” One of the least reported stories of the U.S. invasion of Iraq is the dispersal of close to 5 million Iraqis displaced either internally or forced to flee across the country’s borders. This exile is one of the greatest refugee crises in modern history. These masses of people displaced by the war in Iraq have become invisible and insignificant, overshadowed by other war-related events. Many of the displaced were the brains, the talent, the pride, the future of Iraq. Many of them, stigmatized by unforgettable violence, will never return to their homes. Amongst the displaced is a group of Iraqis who were forced from their homes because they had helped the United States. They signed up to serve as translators working for the U.S. military or as experts with other U.S. government agencies, NGOs, or American companies in Iraq. They saved lives; they built cultural and linguistic bridges; they sacrificed their own safety and the safety of their families to help participate in what they thought would be the creation of a better Iraq. They quickly became one of the most hunted groups in the country. They bore a lethal stigma as “collaborators” or “traitors” that transcended sect or tribe, and they were targeted in assassination campaigns that drove many of them either into hiding or out of the country. “The threat came in 2006. I got the envelope with a bullet in it and a message: “Leave your house, leave your town, or death is coming to you.” They gave me just 24 hours to leave…and I left. I received the threat because I was working with the United States Marine Corps.” For people who fear for their life and seek refugee in the U.S., the government offers resettlement as the “option of last resort”. I photographed Iraqis who have been resettled and are living in Washington, D.C. Once here, these refugees often feel abandoned by the country they risked their lives for; many are unemployed and facing dire financial crises; many wish they could return home. Still fearful for their own safety and the safety of family members in Iraq, many asked that I not reveal their faces or names. As the U.S. cuts back its military presence in Iraq, the plight of Iraqis who helped the United States is uncertain and deeply troubling. Currently, there is no scenario for aiding or airlifting all those Iraqis and their families, thus putting them at great risk of being targeted as soon as the U.S. Army withdraws.
